A barrier of caution tape warns beachgoers to stay out of the water at Will Rogers State Beach, which was polluted by runoff from a nearby storm drain and creek in Pacific Palisades, California. According to a report release this week, six of the 10 most-polluted beach areas in California are in Los Angeles County.
